I picked it up for $1 today at a garage sale. I figured it might make a good reference book. A New History of Great Britain, Shortened Edition, by R.B. Mowat. I figured that since it was published by Oxford, it should be good. It was, however, printed in 1930, first edition 1928, so it might have some misinformation that has been rectified or questioned in the last 81 years.
Anyone know anything about this book? Is it reputable? Accurate? Anybody know when the unshortened version was first printed?
Also, if this is the inappropriate forum, go ahead and move it.
